Red — No. 910 A warm, brick red with a smooth unglazed surface. Suitable for red brick chim-
neys and harmonizes with a red tile roof, but not with red wood or composition
Buff— No. 904 Similar in character to the red. A safe color to use; harmonious with other colors.
Gray — No. 807 Fieldstone gray has a rough, sanded surface. It is a new color for chimney pots
but particularly suitable for stone or gray Terra Cotta houses and harmonious
with any roof material.
White— No. 1020 A matt glazed pure white, effective for formal buildings, or for chimneys where
an impression of lightness in weight is desired.
Slate Blue — No. 1055 .... A matt glazed soft Mue of beautiful tone and texture. An unusual color for
chimney pots and one that will add an interesting touch of color wherever it is
used. Especially good with slate roofs, plain or variegated.
Black— No. 952 A matt glazed black chimney pot will frequently fit the color scheme exactly.
Where a bright color would clash a black chimney pot is always safe.
Green— No. 1839 A lustrous glazed dark green, a unique color for chimney pots and one that needs
no explanation in a day of green tile and shingle roofs. Particularly harmonious
with stone or cement chimneys.
Dark Blue— No. 1051-A ... A lustrous glazed dark blue— certainly unique but not inappropriate. A small
spot of strong color is attractive on a white stucco or concrete chimney.
// a different color is wanted describe it as closely as possible
and we shall submit a sample. No extra charge involved.

The Wood Burning Fireplace
The flue of a wood burning fireplace, to insure perfect draft, should not be less
in cross section area than 1/10 the area of the face of the fireplace, for a rectangular
flue. 1/12 will do if it is absolutely necessary to save space, and 1/12 is sufficient if
the flue is round.
To determine the area of a circular flue multiply the radius squared by 3.1416.
The diagram illustrates approved fireplace construction. A fireplace so de-
signed will have perfect draft and will reflect the maximum of heat into the r
The old fashioned rectangular fireplace with straight walls will draw perfectly
if the flue is large enough, but a large proportion of the heat goes up the chimney
with the smoke.
In selecting a chimney pot be sure to gauge the flue at its narrowest point. The
dimensions of flues in the chimney pots illustrated are given at narrowest point,
The chimney pot at its apex should be not less than two feet higher than the
nearest peak roof, and not less than three feet higher than the nearest flat roof.
(The draft can be improved in many old chimneys if the height is increased by the
addition of a chimney pot.)
The flues for furnaces, hot water boilers and ranges average much -mailer than
open fireplace flues unless the heating plant is a very large one.
